I just returned from my first speech as an independent thought leader. It was part of the Sitewire Expert Series and took place in Tempe, AZ, which has a burgeoning social and emerging technology scene — over 200 people attended my speech. In fact, it was a bit of a social media week with concurrent meetings with the Social Media Club of Phoenix.
The speech covers some of the ideas in Groundswell, but I’ve been working on improving the frameworks discussed in the book, some of which (like the Social Technographics ladder) are more than a year old. I’ll be going into some of these ideas in future posts.
If you’re interested in seeing a video of the speech, Sitewire’s team captured it in a Ustream video:
